2 men accused in campaign donor scheme
Two Virginia businessmen were indicted in federal court Wednesday on charges of conspiring to illegally reimburse nearly $200,000 to donors of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign and her 2006 Senate campaign.
William P. Danielczyk Jr., 49, of Oakton, and Eugene R. Biagi, 76, also of Oakton, were accused of trying to cover up the reimbursements of the political contributions by back-dating letters and making other moves to try to show that the money was "consulting fees" for work the donors did.
Federal campaign contribution records show the men were donors to Hillary Clinton from 2006 and 2008.
The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria. April G. Spittle, Danielczyk's assistant, pleaded guilty earlier this month to one count of making reimbursed contributions to the candidate's 2008 presidential campaign.
